With so many of us being overwhelmed by the activities of the day, creating a minimalist bedroom can be the key to a night of good sleep and a relaxed attitude when we awaken. Years ago our bedrooms where filled with busy patterns and too much color. The times have changed. Today our lives are busy, with work, kids and life in general. At the end of the day we need to relax. One of the best ways to calm down and relax is to walk into a bedroom that is updated to create a quiet space where we can unwind.
Many of the newest bedding collections is based on minimalism. Less is more. One of the best choices for creating a quiet space is to begin with modern bedding. Subtle plaids that have delicately blended colors can be very inviting. Rather than select a plaid that is filled with vibrant and distinctive colors, select a plaid that is muted in color, so that the design is barely noticeable. Soft and subtle is the key.
For those who do not wish to decorate with a plaid comforter, the hotel collection bedding may be the perfect answer. The style is elegant. The color combinations can be subtle. The pattern is simple. Beginning with two colors, the background is solid with only a single solid pattern around the edge of the comforter. The lines are crisp and clean, minimalist and modern. Whether the selection is a taupe background with a brown trim or a black background with a white trim, the pattern is strikingly simple.
Modern designs give up nothing. The styles are fashionable and elegant without the busy patterns offered by toile bedding or Damask fabric. Of course, for those who feel the need to add a little more pattern to the room, accessories are the key. The use of throw pillows and shams can become the key accent pieces without compromising the updated appeal of minimalist styles.
